As we are fighting against HR 1592 on Capitol Hill that was introduced by John Conyers and Mark Kirk we also must begin to discuss how powerful the homosexual lobby is in DC and all across the country. Especially in our traditional public schools.
There is a serious spike of pink triangles in classrooms as well as grade school studies of "gay" history. Some public schools are sponsoring transvestite speakers. School-wide events to celebrate homosexuality. Student activists spreading propaganda through school publications. Legislation mandating homosexual indoctrination.
All of this is taking place in a state where 156 schools host homosexual clubs, called "gay-straight alliances" by advocates. Such clubs are provided seed money by a state program to "support" students practicing homosexual behavior. Nationally, GLSEN has said there are over 800 such clubs. GLSEN, the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network, was founded in Massachusetts in the early 1990s by a male teacher engaged in homosexual activity.
Right here in Michigan, parents are angered over a "Diversity Day" held recently at Grand Haven High School. During this event, teens attended "homophobia" seminars and featured a well-known homosexual activist from Detroit.
GLSEN programs, operating under the guise of "safety" or "diversity" and "tolerance" outreaches, are simply homosexual indoctrination/recruitment programs. While homosexuals publicly deny they're recruiting vulnerable youngsters for a life of deviant sexual behavior, they're much more candid in their own media-media seldom read by parents.
A few years ago in California, Santa Rosa High School was devoted to "Days of Diversity." Skits promoted homosexual and heterosexual promiscuous sex. One skit derided the Bible by implication, when a student actor who believed in a special "book" that she reads on Sunday, said that this book gave her permission to "hate." Parents were not fully informed about the contents of the workshops, and many feel they were deceived.
The high school students also presented skits dealing with sexual molestation, rape, anorexia and suicide. Other workshops during this diversity week advocated radical environmentalism, socialism and animal rights. Some parents who had submitted the "opt-out" forms provided through California pro-family organizations had children who still attended the events.
In Detroit Public Schools LGBT gangs are running the high schools to the extent of where girls are afraid to use the restrooms. In other words, I am afraid to pee without being jumped and raped. But when a Gay or Lesbian is jumped by a group of heterosexuals that is considered a crime. In Benton Harbor, students have taken a oath of silence to learn about "diversity".
This is serious. Jon Stryker is plotting his move.
This is just another case of liberals forcing their agenda on impressionable young minds. Gone are the days when school children learned Math, English, Science, and History. Our current education system is more concerned the future of our Country receives “sensitivity training” than American History courses.
There is currently a lawsuit pending in Massachusetts regarding the curriculum of Eastbrook Elementary School. The State, along with the ACLU, the Human Rights Campaign, the Massachusetts Teachers Association, and Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders are arguing a State interest in teaching homosexuality. The lawsuit stems from David Parker’s disagreement with a book given to his 5 year old son as part of “diversity training”.
In California, SB 777 - Homosexual Indoctrination in Schools, passed the Senate Judiciary committee and is headed to the Senate Floor. Almost identical to last session's highly controversial SB 1437, this legislation would ban any textbooks, teaching or activities in schools that "reflect adversely" upon homosexuals, transgenders, bisexuals, and those with gender (perceived or actual) issues. SB 777 not only affects textbooks and instructional materials for kindergarten and grades 1-12, it also affects all school-sponsored activities. SB 777 goes much further than any other past attack on the moral and religious beliefs of Californians. This bill specifically targets people of faith and then discriminates against their sincerely held beliefs by banning their freedoms of speech and association.
Gary Glenn of AFA Michigan, says, "Many parents have no idea that homosexual activists are allowed to use our public schools as a propaganda forum to indoctrinate and recruit young children and adolescents. Here in Michigan, the homosexual Triangle Foundation boasts that it has been allowed to use public school classrooms as early as first grade to promote their high-risk agenda. Parents need to be informed that the behavior and lifestyle homosexual activists are promoting leads to dramatically higher risk of domestic violence, mental illness, substance abuse, eating disorders, serious life-threatening disease, and even premature death."
And it is worse on the college level. The Democratic-controlled University of Michigan offers courses on "How To Be Gay." Where is the outrage?
Homosexual zealots are operating an amazingly efficient brainwashing and recruitment machine-and parents are getting to foot the bill. This must stop right away.
Parents should rightly demand an end to any state or federal funding of homosexual recruitment programs in the public schools. They should also demand that public schools eliminate any pro-homosexual programs designed to recruit children. And they must demand an end to any programs that undermine parental authority or the moral values they are instilling in their children.
